Our first cherry tomatoes! Seemed like it took an eternity for them to ripen…but well worth the wait.

Fresh Cherry Tomatoes from the Garden

Maddie was still in the womb when the initial paint job was done.  Now, at the age of four, she has become my youngest client to date.

She needed a little more sparkle…

A little more pink…

And just why is there a giraffe in a garden?

Thankfully, for now, the giraffe stays.

It was such a pleasure to see how much she’d grown and to see how much she enjoyed her room.  I have a feeling I’ll be back in a few years…

Really pleased with the way these turned out.  Tea length, with inner and outer envelopes in ecru.  Opted for  script vs. print. (to which I was thrilled)   Printed with archival inks onto fine art paper, and then delicately cut down with sharp x-acto.  All the best to the lucky couple and (if you’re reading this) many thanks for a fabulous project!

…and  here  I was hoping to show you a photo of the lovely garden we’ve Nick’s been working on.   A good list will have to suffice.

1. Red Bell Pepper

2. Green Bell Pepper

3. Banana Pepper

4. Avocado (this may take years to produce)

5. Mexican Oregano

6. Basil

So far that’s it…but I’ve put in an inquiry for Large and Cherry tomatoes.  Why  not?

it occurs to me…

that on this early Friday morning, we are nearing (among other events) Valentine’s Day! Before my schedule heats up, be sure to get your custom pen & ink drawings commissioned.  I mean what could be sweeter than an elegant sketch of your love nest?  Or surprise your sweetie with a sketch of their childhood home!  All I need are the best photos you can find…(if you’re local to Savannah, I’ll gladly take them for you)  Oh and if you get your order in quick, there will still be time for my friends at Turtle Creek to print your custom drawing onto beautiful Crane Stationery! Skip on over to The Ink Lab for more information.

Oh and speaking of Turtle Creek…I’ve got their very own custom ink in the works…here’s the rough pencil sketch…

Wishing you all a super-fab Friday!

So I’m putting the finishing touches on the McIntosh Manor B&B site…still waiting for my client to supply me with some much needed photos, but forging ahead without them for the moment. If it comes down to it, I might just take the lack of photos as an opportunity to drive down there and take the pics myself…and enjoy some time in the country, of course! (Sometimes I crave the excuse that my cell phone has no signal.) Anywho…I love putting the “finishing touch” on any project. The most glorifying part of wrapping a present, is topping it off with a hand-made bow right? Gotta love the details.
